Access Higher Education

Access Higher Education

We recognise not every student has the same opportunities to study a full range of courses while at school so we are building a suite of online access courses which are a flexible way to get the grades you need. You can start anytime, spread the cost, and study at your own pace. Limited fee waivers are available for those from a widening access background and who have an undergraduate offer to the University of Aberdeen conditional on passing one of the courses below. For more information on fee waivers please contact .

Courses currently available and eligible for fee wavers are: 

English (SCQF 6)

Maths (SCQF 7)

Biology (SCQF 7)

Coming in 2024:

Arts & Social Sciences (SCQF 7)

Physics for Engineers (SCQF 7)


Further courses are available at lower levels if needed. For more information about online access courses please see the dedicated web page.
